My Xbox 360 controller appears to be having some issues: i turned the xbox on, and it is immediay prompting me to download an update from Xbox Live, however, I cannot get my controller connected to get rid...


There is a connect button on the controller as well. See this site or follow the instructions below. http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/get-started/console/connecting-game-controllers.aspx

  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.
  3. Press and release the connect button on the console.
  4. Within 20 seconds, press and release the connect button on the controller.
  5. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.

How do i sync the wirless controller to the xbox


There's a button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I've linked a video for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim.

Wireless xbox 360 controller


Hey Pete,

Xbox 360 controllers do not have that problem very often and you know what happens to me sometimes. I change the batteries and the controller still doesn't turn on. Turns out the batteries that i replaced had no juice on it. Make sure you are using the right kind of batteries too meaning don't cheap out and use the ones you get at 99c stores or anything like that. Those will work by the way they will not last more two days. Buy new batteries.

Xbox 360 controller not registering


hey there sellina and biobat,


I had the same thing happen to me, if it's just two lights that flash for a moment and then turn off. It means the controller is having a hardware failure. I ended up just returning the controller and got a new one. This generally occurs in 3rd-party controllers like Mad Catz.
